Hays: Hartley returns to form for Huskies
With one All-American's season in doubt and a second All-American struggling with foul trouble, Bria Hartley showed she's back to All-American form, leading top-ranked Connecticut past No. 3 Stanford, writes Graham Hays. Story
UConn said Mosqueda-Lewis will have an MRI on her injured arm Tuesday evening and the school will provide an update on her condition Wednesday.
The junior was coming down with a defensive rebound just over 2 minutes into the half when she became tangled with the Cardinal's Chiney Ogwumike. Mosqueda-Lewis fell forward, landing with her full weight on her right hand and elbow.
The arena went silent as she began shrieking and writhing on the court. She was helped from the court by a trainer.
Connecticut coach Geno Auriemma wasn't sure how badly his star was hurt.
"They are just going to keep evaluating her (Tuesday) and see how she responds," Auriemma said. "They really don't know anything right now. She landed with her palm on the floor then when her arm bent her elbow hit the floor. There are two separate things she's trying to figure out."
The Huskies were leading 41-26 at the time. Mosqueda-Lewis had nine points in 22 minutes.
Guard Bria Hartley said she talked to her after the game and that she "seemed fine."
